Top 10 BYOD concerns — and how to overcome them [Part 1]

Neo LMS

BYOD at school is more than the latest buzz phrase you hear at every corner of the teacher’s rooms or along school hallways. More and more schools adopt BYOD policies and allow students to bring their own mobile phones, tablets, eBooks, and other devices in the classroom, and use them as tools to enhance learning. But failure BYOD stories exist as well, and they rarely hit the headlines as often. But this shouldn’t stop schools from giving BYOD at least a chance.

Debunking 3 myths about BYOD in the classroom

Neo LMS

BYOD — Bring Your Own Device — has gained some momentum in today’s education system. From temp teachers to entire school districts, more and more educational staff debate about or seriously consider the adoption of BYOD in their instruction. Adopting BYOD in schools seems like a win-win situation. But as with all things belonging to the real world, that one Murphy’s law that says “anything that can go wrong, will go wrong” applies to BYOD as well.

The Edtech Revolution: 2010 – 2017

Securly

Given that many children were acquiring iPads for personal use, some schools adopted a Bring Your Own Device ( BYOD) Policy. CIPA requires schools and libraries to install measures to protect children from obscene or harmful content in exchange for discounts offered by the E-rate program. In order to impart this knowledge to their students, teachers also had to go through digital literacy training.

Tell Me All About it with Tellagami

This is a cool tool for BYOD students and teachers to use for animated project videos. Sharing Created Gamis While not having to worry about log in information is a plus and sharing is easy, there is not currently a way to see a library of the Gamis one makes when in the app. Students could also embed the Gami in a digital portfolio such as a Google Site or a blog.

Idioms, Not Idiots, for Promoting Speaking Skills

Baker's B.Y.O.D.

Using OMM & BYOD for Recording Student Voices As an introductory activity for John Steinbeck''s novella, Of Mice and Men , students worked in groups to record a quick conversation using idioms (not idiots) from the 1930''s. We tried a few different techniques (go through Google Drive and Edmodo''s library), but none seemed to work. I''m figuring out the BYOD as I go, so if you, dear reader, have more efficient techniques, please share!

A letter of support

NeverEndingSearch

It’s hard to make sense of the current climate for school libraries. In other areas, library programs are being cut because some tight budgets favor more pressing priorities. As this year’s School Library Month draws to an end, I thought it might help similar efforts if I shared this recent letter. We curate new forms of digital texts. As it continues to shift, school librarians teach and model strategies for digital workflow.
